Planned Giving at IIE
Your Gift Today Transforms Lives
Your commitment to making a planned gift is a testament to the extraordinary impact you can have on generations to come. It is more than just a generous act; it is a compassionate investment that builds upon a remarkable legacy spanning over a century of IIE’s history. By supporting IIE, you empower us to launch and sustain initiatives that will continue to make a difference in perpetuity, leaving an indelible mark on the world.
Through your estate gift, you have the power to fulfill your personal, financial, and philanthropic goals while laying a strong foundation for future generations to access international education and pursue their dreams. Your gift can be designated for a specific program or purpose, or it can be unrestricted, allowing IIE to adapt to unforeseen opportunities and address evolving needs.
Leave a Lasting IIE Legacy
Within your estate plans, there are countless avenues for charitable giving that encompass a range of options, including:
- Bequests (through wills or living trusts)
- Retirement plan assets
- Life insurance
- Charitable trusts
- Stocks or mutual funds
Leaving a Bequest to IIE
Bequests are the simplest and most common form of a planned gift. Leaving a bequest to IIE can be as straightforward as including the paragraph below in your will:
“I give, devise, and bequeath the sum of $____________ or ______ percent of my estate to the Institute of International Education, a nonprofit institution incorporated in the State of New York with the tax identification number 13-1624046, for its unrestricted use and purpose.”
